The Common Entrance Test (CET) is one of the NEP 2020 plans that will be implemented this year. Hence, all this process is undertaken by a 40 member committee functioning under the Secretary of Higher Education. Technical courses in regional languages, multiple exit and entry schemes, and more plans will also be implemented under NEP 2020.
NEP implementation strategy (NEP) for 2021:
All the higher educational institutions from each state will be a part of NEP. Hence, the plan is to implement 10 new activities in these institutions in phases. Since the institutions vary in size, all of them cannot be covered in a single go.
The first plan to be implemented is the academic bank of credit. Hence, this scheme will be ready by May and June. As a result of this scheme, there will be multiple entries and exit schemes. However, this is only valid in the same institution and within three years. Hence, the main aim is to have a cluster of institutions where people can easily move from one to another with the academic bank of credit.
Another initiative is the National Research Foundation. Hence, the plan will be implemented soon as approval from the finance committee had already been granted. Therefore, NRF will also be ready by April and May.
CUCET- one of the major NEP plan:
The CUCET that is the common entrance test is also ready. Hence, the test will be computer-based and will be conducted by NTA. The sole issue is that focus will be shifted from school exams to CUCET. Hence, students might focus less on their school exams. However, the examination will be solely for undergraduate courses and not for higher levels.
When will technical education in regional language start?
The regional languages will be an addition to classroom teaching. Hence, the regular courses in English will carry on. Technical Education in regional language will be implemented for first-year students initially. Hence, this will help students attain a better understanding.
